Tips for Packing Jewelry

Whether you are traveling with heirloom pieces or simply don’t want your necklaces to get into a tangled mess, packing your jewelry safely is important. And trust us, we know packing jewelry can be a nightmare. The last thing you want is to arrive at your destination with broken or missing pieces! That’s why we have a few helpful tips for packing jewelry that will make traveling with your favorite pieces a breeze.

The Safest Ways to Pack Jewelry

Jewelry rolls or pouches: Investing in a jewelry roll or pouch is one of the easier ways to travel with your jewels. Jewelry pouches are perfect for holding your smaller pieces of jewelry like bracelets and earrings. Most jewelry rolls even include specific compartments for rings and necklaces. Both options are perfect for short-term travel or for organizing all your jewelry during a move. Some pouches are specially designed for fine jewelry to prevent scratches or tarnishing.

Hand towel: Don’t have a jewelry roll or pouch? No problem, a hand towel will work just as well. Just start by laying your necklaces out across the towel. Then, roll the towel up from one end to the other. Tie each end of the rolled towel with hair ties or rubber bands to keep it secure. This easy technique even works for rings and earrings.

Pill organizer: Another option that is especially helpful for earring and rings is a pill organizer. The individual compartments make it easy to store smaller pieces and prevent you from losing any earring backs. Also, pill organizers are great for moving because you don’t have to worry about your jewelry getting crushed.

Buttons: Insert the earring through a button hole (one button per earring pair). This is a great way to put those spare buttons to use (the extra ones that come with your clothes that you never actually use). 

Jewelry box: One way to move all your jewelry is with your jewelry box. This is especially easy because you don’t have to pack each piece individually. Just secure your box with tape, wrap it in a towel for an extra layer of protection, and all your pieces will stay secure.

Drinking straws: Don’t you hate it when all your necklaces get tangled? When you’re traveling, it’s hard to prevent this from happening, but drinking straws are an easy solution. Just string one end of the necklace through the straw and clasp it closed. You won’t have to worry about your necklaces getting tangled again.

Tissue paper: Another helpful travel tip is using tissue paper. Simply wrap each piece in tissue paper, and put them all in a small plastic bag. This keeps your jewelry together in one place while ensuring that each piece is protected.
